Goals: The purpose of this course is to un-naturalize consumption by teaching students to critically examine the development and the consequences of act of consumption and societies whose dominant feature is based on consumption. Content: As Western industrial societies have come to outsource their production facilities to the developing nations, they have become societies based on consumption rather than production. This course explores the consequences of this transition by studying various texts that examine the consequences of consumption in relationship to food, childhood, waste, environment, politics, and the dilemma of choice.
